And the worst part is…

This update is really just a collection of half-written posts and notes from the past week or so. It happens from time to time. I just get too busy to put together anything of significant length, add photos, etc. 10/03/11: And now. It’s been a hell of a weekend. Well, it’s been more than that.… Continue reading And the worst part is…

Contact Defect

I just recently plugged nearly 500 old posts from IAM into this site’s timeline. It is the only other real place that I have published a significant body of content. IAM is a subsection of BME, the Body Modification Ezine, a private community for people interested in tattoos, piercing, etc. I was originally invited by my best… Continue reading Contact Defect

This isn’t the last…

I’ve been thinking all morning about where to start this. I can’t really decide on an appropriate starting point. How about… 9 years ago I trekked to Los Angeles on a personal adventure and found myself waking up on Sycamore St. in Hollywood. I was in the apartment of my new friend and upcoming professional… Continue reading This isn’t the last…

The afterglow of pure resplendence…

Santa Cruz, California. A city of particular significance for me for more than one reason and a unique place unto itself, not really like any other I know. That became even more apparent when I went to name the Flickr Set “Santa Cruz: Street” and realized that there isn’t really any actual… street. It might… Continue reading The afterglow of pure resplendence…

What forever means…

At this time last week I was preparing to leave Paris, FR, after 3.5 amazing months there. At this time this week I am in Seattle, WA preparing to spin after having spun my final set at BedlamBedlam, a new store opened by one of my close friends, Suki Valentine and her husband, Shea. I flew… Continue reading What forever means…

In exchange for a smile.

And so, here we are. My last week in Paris. So much has changed since even my last entry. Well, that was 21 days ago so I guess that makes sense. 3 weeks ago I moved from my original apartment, which I’d only rented for 2 months, to an amazing place on Île Saint-Louis. I wake… Continue reading In exchange for a smile.

The War of Art

And so here I sit. Watching tour boats travel up and down the Seine from my spot on Paris Plages, next to the pétanque courts. My croissant is mediocre and I’m treating myself to a Fanta Orange (I stopped drinking soda a long time ago). There are people painting around me, and people filming the… Continue reading The War of Art

A Day In The Life

I feel compelled to commit this to medium before it goes out of my head. Not that I think it will, not how I’m feeling at this very moment, because it’s one of those feelings I think a person only ever experiences a precious few times in their life. Two months ago I left the… Continue reading A Day In The Life

Nothing is true…

This post will be about Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and the series return to “the individual’s quest” format that made the first two such incredible experiences for me, especially the original Assassin’s Creed and it’s lead protagonist, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad. First though, you need to watch this. That song is “Iron” by Woodkid. It is one of my… Continue reading Nothing is true…
